A record 103 cruise ships are booked to visit Cork in 2019, including several that will dock for the first time in the port.

New ships like Celebrity Reflection and Scenic Eclipse, billed as contender for the most luxurious cruise ship in the world, will make their maiden calls at Cobh's deep water quay, along with MS Nieuw Statendam.

With a single cruise ship left to dock in 2018, Port Cork’s 2018 cruise season is drawing to close.

A total of 92 cruise ships will have called in 2018, which represents the port's most significant cruise season ever.

Over 69,000 crew and 157,000 passengers will have stepped ashore, boosting local economy by an estimated EUR 12 million.

With the continued increase in the number of visits, the Port Cork is keen to explore the option of a 2nd cruise berth in Cobh.

Port Cork recently launched ‘Expressions of Interest’ to the market thus inviting submissions from potentially interested parties in order to develop and/or operate a new cruise ship berth at Lynch’s Quay Cobh.
